NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms with Leon Washington in an attempt to fix their struggles on special teams.
The Titans announced the deal Tuesday.
An eight-year veteran, Washington is a two-time Pro Bowler who has returned 245 kickoffs averaging 25.9 yards per return with 168 punt returns averaging 9.9 yards a return. He was waived last week by New England and spent the previous three seasons with Seattle. He started with the Jets between between 2006 and 2009.
The Titans waived returner Devon Wylie and center Kevin Matthews. Wylie lost a fumble on a kickoff return and bobbled a punt last week.
They also agreed to terms with defensive tackle Frank Kearse adding him to the practice squad and placed defensive tackle Chigbo Anunoby on the squad's injured list.
